Rapport qualité/prix : Excellent
The FabFilter Micro is a single band filter plug-in that is available for Mac or PC operating systems and in VST and RTAS formats as well as AU for Mac. The Micro plug-in is based on FabFilter's original plug-in, but is a lot simpler since it's just one band and is also a lot cheaper. You can download a trial or buy the full version straight from Fab Filter's website. Installing the plug-in was straight forward and not complicated at all really - just follow the step by step instructions as you would for installing any piece of software and you should be good to go. The interface of the plug-in is definitely user friendly, as they've made it as easy as possible to use with this simple, one band make up. It also looks cool and is easy on the eyes with the color and the graph that allows you to visualize your filtering. I haven't looked at the manual for this plug-in and don't anticipate ever needing to.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The system that I've used the FabFilter Micro plug-in on is Pro Tools HD based. I don't own it and it was at a friend's home studio, so I don't know all of his exact specs, but suffice it to say that it's a pretty fast system and being that it's Pro Tools HD, it's able to handle just about any configuration of plug-ins anyway. I can't say how well it will run on an LE system or something similar, but I don't plan on it being a problem since I'll soon be picking this up myself for my home studio which is LE based.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, the FabFilter Micro is a great little plug-in. While it's not as versatile as the original FabFilter One, which is what this plug-in is based on, it's still very useful and if you stack them it's essentially the same sort of effect. I've used the FabFilter Micro plug-in at a friend's home studio that is really more than a home studio since he's got a tracking room built in. He swears by this plug-in and so I decided to give it a shot while I was working a bit with him there and have to say that I love the sound. It's awesome for getting creative or for doing some traditional EQing with one band. The best part about the Micro is the price, so if you want a cheap filter plug-in that's easy to use and sounds great, it's definitely at least worth giving the demo a try.
